Bishop Loverde in the Arlington Catholic Herald

This week we join our diocesan family in celebrating Bishop Loverde’s upcoming 50th anniversary of priestly ordination, drawing particular attention to his role as an evangelist through traditional and new media.  As Bishop Loverde has written,  “Evangelization simply means sharing the Good News about a Person, Jesus Christ. It is you and I taking a step toward Jesus…and then toward others to introduce Him. In all times, all around the world, the Church has existed to evangelize, to proclaim Jesus Christ” (Go Forth with Hearts on Fire, 9-10).

In preparation for the upcoming Jubilee Year of Mercy, Bishop Loverde has been heard exhorting  Chancery staff and the faithful of the Diocese of Arlington:

“We must be convincing heralds of God’s mercy!”


He himself is a herald of God’s mercy  in countless ways. One notable way is through his writing for the Arlington Catholic Herald.  Bishop Loverde teaches on matters of faith and morals through his bi-weekly columns in the publication, which is delivered to 70,000 homes in Northern Virginia and to countless others through their website and e-newsletters.

Bishop Loverde’s Three Most Popular Columns From 2015 Were:

1. Welcoming the Holy Father (on the arrival of Pope Francis to the USA)

2. God’s Plan for Parenthood (Reflections on Planned Parenthood)

3. The Priesthood as Gift and Mystery (Reflections On Priestly Ordination)

And earlier this year Bishop Loverde and the Arlington Catholic Herald staff won 2nd place for the Best Explanation of the Church’s Position on Marriage from the Catholic Press Association for Bishop Loverde’s column, “Stand for Marriage, Stand for Faith.”
